This individual will generate/follow up on leads until the deal is finalized, call on general contractors, architects, designers, builders in order to build long-lasting relationships, and will also managed part of the existing accounts, mostly in Vancouver and Lower Mainland.

They are looking for a self-motivated individual with a consultative approach and strong communications skills. Someone who is determined to build a rich client portfolio and grow both financially and career-wise. This role will gradually take over part of the accounts that the two owners are currently managing, which means a high volume of business opportunities that will lead to high commission/upside.
